The Wisconsin Child Care Information Center (CCIC) is a mail-order lending library and information clearinghouse serving anyone in Wisconsin working in the field of child care and early childhood education. Our goal is to help Wisconsin child care professionals give the best possible start to Wisconsin's children.

CCIC offers:

Wisconsin Core Competencies for Professionals Working with Young Children & Their Families ― Competencias básicas de Wisconsin para profesionales que trabajan con niños pequeños y sus familias ― is a new document available on the Wisconsin Early Childhood Collaborating Partners website.  Please email or phone 1-800-362-7353 to request print copies.

Core Competencies are expectations for what the workforce should know (content) and be able to do (skills) in a respectful & competent manner (attitudes) in their roles working with and/or on behalf of children and their families.  The Core Competencies are organized under 12 Content Areas.

Why have Core Competencies?  To create a common thread of Professional Development expectations across the variety of early care and education partners for the ultimate benefit of children and families in Wisconsin.

CCIC is sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families, Division of Early Care and Education, and is administered by the Department of Public Instruction, Resources for Libraries and Lifelong Learning. We welcome your questions, comments and suggestions.
